Wirra Wirra, derived from the aboriginal name meaning "amongst the gum trees" was established in McLaren Vale by Robert Strangways Wigley, a former state cricketer and well known eccentric. Following his death in 1924 the vineyards were sold by his family and the cellars fell into disuse until the site was bought by cousins Greg and Roger Trott in 1969.
"Trott" transformed the winery into the iconic place it is today in his own inimitable style - always passionate, always iconoclastic, always fun and always unique. Trott passed away in 2005, but his philosophies are well integrated into the culture at Wirra Wirra. These are built around the celebration of life: good friends, fine food, lively conversation, wonderful music, and of course ...great wine.
